Your rights as a data subject
As a person affected by data processing, you have the right to information (Art. 15 GDPR), correction (Art. 16 GDPR), data deletion (Art. 17 GDPR), restriction of processing (Art. 18 GDPR) and data portability (Art. 20 GDPR).
If you have consented to the processing of your personal data by us, you have the right to revoke your consent at any time. The lawfulness of the processing of your personal data until revocation is not affected by the revocation. Similarly, further processing of this data on the basis of another legal basis, such as for the fulfilment of legal obligations, remains unaffected (see the section â€œLegal bases for processingâ€).
Right of objection
You have the right to object at any time, on grounds relating to your particular situation, to the processing of personal data relating to you which is carried out on the basis of Article 6(1)(e) of the GDPR (data processing in the public interest) or Article 6(1)(f) of the GDPR (data processing on the basis of a balance of interests). If you object, we will only continue to process your personal data insofar as we can demonstrate compelling legitimate grounds for doing so which override your interests, rights and freedoms, or insofar as the processing serves to assert, exercise or defend legal claims.
We kindly ask you to send your claims or explanations to the following contact address if possible: firstname.lastname@example.org
If you believe that the processing of your personal data violates legal requirements, you have the right to lodge a complaint with a competent data protection supervisory authority (Art. 77 GDPR).
You can lodge a complaint with your responsible supervisory authority at any time. Your responsible supervisory authority depends on the federal state of your residence, your work or the alleged violation. A list of supervisory authorities (for the non-public sector) with addresses can be found at: https://www.bfdi.bund.de/DE/Infothek/Anschriften_Links/anschriften_links-node.html.

Deletion or blocking of data
We adhere to the principles of data avoidance and data economy. We therefore only store your personal data for as long as is necessary to achieve the purposes stated here or as stipulated by the various storage periods provided for by law. After the respective purpose has ceased to exist or these periods have expired, the corresponding data is routinely blocked or deleted in accordance with the statutory provisions.

Use of Google Analytics
â€œThis website uses Google Analytics, a web analysis service of Google Inc. (hereinafter: “Google”). Google Analytics uses so-called “cookies”, i.e. which are text files stored on your computer and which analyse how you use a website. The cookie-generated data regarding your use of this website will generally be forwarded to a Google server in the USA and stored there. Based on the activation of the IP anonymisation on this website, your IP address will be truncated by Google within the Member States of the European Union or other parties to the Agreement on the European Economic Area. Only in exceptional cases will the full IP address be transferred to a Google server based in the USA and shortened. On behalf of the operator of this website, Google will use this information for the purpose of evaluating your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity for website operators and providing other services relating to website activity and Internet usage. The IP address provided by your browser
as part of Google Analytics will not be merged with other Google data.
The purposes of the data processing are to evaluate the use of the website and to compile reports on activities on the website. Based on the use of the website and the Internet, further related services are then to be provided. The processing is based on the legitimate interest of the website operator.
Additionally or as an alternative to the Browser Add-On you can disable tracking by Google Analytics on our pages [google_analytics_optout] by CLICKING HERE [/google_analytics_optout]. This will install an opt-out cookie on your device. This prevents Google Analytics from tracking this website and this browser in the future as long as the cookie remains installed in your browser.
Use of script libraries (Google Webfonts)
In order to display our content correctly and graphically appealing across browsers, we use script libraries and font libraries such as Google Webfonts (https://www.google.com/webfonts/) on this website. Google Web Fonts are transferred to your browserâ€™s cache to avoid multiple loading. If the browser does not support Google Web Fonts or prevents access, content is displayed in a standard font.
Calling up script libraries or font libraries does not automatically trigger a connection to the library operator. It is theoretically possible – although it is currently unclear whether and, if so, for what purposes – that the operators of such libraries collect data.
Use of Google Maps

Use of Google reCAPTCHA
In our Internet presence we use Google reCAPTCHA to check and avoid interactions on our website through automated access, e.g. through so-called bots. This is a service of Google LLC, 1600 Amphitheatre Parkway, Mountain View, CA 94043 USA, hereinafter only “Google”.
Due to the certification according to the EU-US Privacy Shield
Google guarantees that the data privacy requirements of the EU are also complied with when processing data in the USA.
This service enables Google to determine from which website a request is sent and from which IP address you are using the so-called reCAPTCHA input box. In addition to your IP address, Google may also collect other information that is necessary for the offer and guarantee of this service.
The legal basis is Art. 6 para. 1 lit. f) GDPR. Our legitimate interest lies in the security of our Internet presence and in the prevention of unwanted, automated access in the form of spam or similar.

Embedded YouTube videos
We embed YouTube videos on some of our web pages. The operator of the corresponding plug-ins is YouTube, LLC, 901 Cherry Ave., San Bruno, CA 94066, USA.

If you are logged into your YouTube account, YouTube can assign your surfing behaviour to you personally. You can prevent this by logging out of your YouTube account.
If you have deactivated the saving of cookies for the Google Ad program, you will not have to expect any such cookies when watching YouTube videos. However, YouTube also stores non-personal usage information in other cookies. If you wish to prevent this, you must block the storage of cookies on your browser.
